I use to watch alot of anime on the sci-fi channel when it first started getting show here around the 90's. Movies like Ninja Scroll, Wicked City and a bunch of guyver episodes were shown. I liked it.

Then, now that it is cool, I think I don't like it. As a kid, alot of stuff was over-looked that has became apparent. I can list them if you ask but I am sure you know what they are.  It also anoys me that batman was turned into an anime and they done a rubbish job of it, in one of them he looks like a crow.

This is a question, not if you have always hated anime but if you liked it, then hated it?

There's a couple of good series out there, but the mainstream stuff (Naruto, Dragonball etc.) is generally pretty poor. I'm pretty keen on Afro Samurai (Samuel Jackson ftw), Black Lagoon, Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo though.

I used to like Dragon Ball Z a lot when I was younger (like 3 years ago lol) but now I think is okay. Though todays anime shows make me want to throw up, like narutu and all those other animes that are full of big boobs and retarted storys and ummm bad anime acting? Sometimes I find some gems here and there like: Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell, and anime movies like: Sword of a Stranger and Wolf Brigadier. Some Japanese dudes just make anime to make money (adding large breast to all females and sexual or overly retarted action and dialog) while others want to create such masterpieces for the people to enjoy  and think about, while cashing in too.

Cowboy bebop has a female anime person who makes you think of sex when she is on screen, I think it might be deliberate.

I'm pretty sure you would have that impression of any anime show with a woman with large breasts.

I would have to say that you are the only "dood" I know of...I haven't seen that much anime, but what I have seen I don't like and a big reason for that is just because I'm not a fan of the general art style associated with anime.

My problem with anime is that it's just so damn cheesy. I do enjoy films by Miyazaki, Akira, and a handful of others, but most of it is just generic. The animation quality is often times ridiculously poor, the stories and characters tend to fit a similar mold, and it's just sooooo cheesy!!!

Do you realize how far you are in the minority you are? You're a female on a message board--for video games, mind you--who doesn't like anime. My mind has been blown.

I have never liked anime, or Japanimation as I call it. Even when I was in grade school it seemed like I was the only one who didn't get into pokemon.

I'm probably am the only "dood" who didn't really like Death Note, the story was good and all, but I didn't give a damn about any of the characters.

I just don' tlike that typical animes always feels somewhat exactly the same...its like JRPG's for the most part, besides not innovating they always have the same type of characters, and if one actually feels more mature for a bit, its then also flooded with things only a young kid could enjoy at the same time, I mean thats just the way japanese choose to do things it seems...but I never liked how that ends up. Only anime's I've ever liked somewhat are Ghost in theShell and Death Note, though I like death note as a manga more, and GitS's manga is pretty cool to, just totally not like the show.

I've always hated anime. It's actually turned me off to entire genres and series of games.

Perfect example: I consider myself an original Pokemon fan, because I was a fan of the game for the two weeks it was out before the cartoon debuted.

Another example: I consider the golden age of gaming to be riiiight around the end of the SNES period, circa 1995-6, before the Japanese developers were capable of fully expressing their artistic inclinations. I consider many installments of various game franchises that came out just after then to be the Jump-the-Shark point.

Incidentally, I'm taking a Japanese course as a laugher for the last 3 credits of my diploma, so I've made it a resolution this fall to play a ton of JRPGS on my 360 to immerse myself in the cultural mindset. So, yeah, I'm sucking it up and essentially watching/playing anime. Should be...interesting.

god don't torture yourself with JRPG's in general...its all just stupid teen drama with big swords and they try it make it so emotional yet kiddy its always really lame....I'd recommend Shin Megami Tensei Persona 3 FES cuz its pretty different from other things, but everything else is just ick, unless you enjoy that stuff.

No, there are plenty of people who are not into anime.

I think part of the problem is that some people who dislike anime generally don't see the good shows. Although I don't think this is the case for everyone,  I do feel that some people don't get a good impression from anime when seeing certain ones, and they base their whole opinion of anime just by seeing one show.

I do think it's rather lame that some american cartoons have adapted the "anime" style for their cartoons. I think it's better to keep unique styles, rather than blending them. American cartoons were good back in the day for a reason and the art style of all cartoons in the future should not be "anime" stylized.

Some anime is decent to watch if you want some good depth into your cartoon
If you want to watch something just for a laugh or for just something to watch, then your going to want just regular cartoons.

I don't Hate anime, I don't watch it much if at all. I have only really enjoyed a few,  not Huge into it and only anime series I own is Astro Boy ( original)

One thing for sure though, is that people who make it put some great detail into everything, and that's pretty commited.

I love the old stuff and the new stuff. I have to admit that there is a lot of junk to swim through, but most other successful art forms have the same issue.

I really want to see the purposed Akira live-action movie..

Well, I love anime. However, I don't watch most of the stuff that was overdubbed with English.

Some of the anime I watched never made it to Adult Swim.

Hokuto No Ken (Fist of the North Star)
Jojo no Kimyo na Bouken (JoJo's Bizzare Adventure)
Bakuen Campus Guardress

Will any of this change your mind? No
A lot of your criticisms are valid.

However, for those of you saying that the Marvel cartoons were superior, I disagree. That just doesn't make any sense. Your just trading in one set of clichés for another. Oh well, to each his own.

I know tons of people who can't stand anime.

However, there's some quality stuff out there in my opinion. The more mature animes will draw you in.

I personally think of "anime" and "cartoons" separately for some reason :|

I love anime, and think it's great. I'm also drawn into anime styled games for this reason as well.

You can't judge a whole form of media all in one basket. I think anyone who says "I love anime" or "I hate anime" is an idiot. No-one would say "I love live action films/series's" or "I hate live action films/series's" You'd judge each one individually. There are some good anime's and some bad anime's, you judge each one individually. I don't look at anime's any diferently to a live action series/film.

I only watch the best Anime. One thing you'll learn in your time is that 99% of everything, nomatter what it is, is crap. So my view of Anime is overly positive, since I only watch stuff I know is going to be awesome.

Ghost in the Shell is one of my favourite movies of all time. Not just anime, all movies. It's in my top 10, probably even top 5. The series was ok, slow to start, but picked up later. Movie was F'ing amazing though. Evangelion actually got me to forge an emotional connection with some of the characters, and the *real* conclusion (or at least the one I liked the best :P), End of Evangelion, was really distrubing, thought provoking, and brilliant.
